Touchdown Aviation 
By Army National Guard Staff Sgt. Marc Belo, Company A, 2nd Battalion, 135th General Support Aviation 
Tebowing 

Colorado Army National Guard Sgt. Ryan Osadchuk is captured at work, "Tebowing" aboard a Colorado Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter Jan. 4, 2012 at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colo. "Tebowing" means to get down on one knee, put your fist to your forehead and start praying -- even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.

Colorado Army National Guard Sgt. Ryan Osadchuk is captured at work, "Tebowing" aboard a Colorado Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter Jan. 4.

"Tebowing" means to get down on one knee, put your fist to your forehead and start praying -- even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.

Osadchuck, a Denver Broncos fan, spontaneously posed in defiance of the photographer, who is a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan -- and in admiration of Broncos' starting quarterback Tim Tebow, who is well-known for his demonstrations of faith.

The Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers will face off in the 2012 AFC Wild Card game Jan. 8.

The helicopter and Soldiers represent the 2nd Battalion, 135th General Support Aviation, and are performing sling-load operations at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colo.
